More than 30 public and private museums, art galleries and exhibition halls are offering free entry next Monday (October 31, 2022) or Reformation Day, which is a religious holiday in parts of Germany, including Hamburg. Under the motto “#seeforfree”, visitors can also explore the historical and natural science museums and attend special events such as readings or guided tours.

#seeforfree offers the opportunity to explore Hamburg’s museums

“Given the current situation, it is all the more important that we are passionate about art and culture, that we meet face to face and that we talk to each other,” said Dr. Carsten Brosda, senator of culture and media. This year’s campaign offers a great opportunity to explore Hamburg’s museums and galleries. A large number of private houses are also opening their doors. The event has been in place since 2018 and provides space for socially important issues to build bridges between different religions and worldviews.

Abstract art and colonial history

The Bargheer Museum, dedicated to the life and work of Hanseatic artist Eduard Bargheer, is among the new participants this year. The museum will exhibit his watercolors and has also programmed conferences, readings and concerts. The Museum of Altona is interested in cartography from a postcolonial perspective while the Museum am Rothenbaum (Markk) is hosting the exhibition “Benin. Pillaged History” and will present its Benin collection in its entirety. More information on all participating museums and galleries and supporting events can be found on the website.
